My god! the guy need to get these on water quick.
The cards are barely breathing.
Anyways, any performance numbers to be seen?
*goes out back and begins digging a grave for the top 3 cards*
I can only imagine how much noise there was in that room... that's insane =)
This guy has the right idea. You can put the frying pan on the heatpipes!
The best part of the image is that hes using expensive GPU's with a cheap (shitty) cooler.
Apart from that, I'm sure the top two or three cards are dying a slow, slow death.
You'd almost have to have 2 PSU's to do something like that right? The cards alone could draw as much as 1200W, and I wouldn't trust any 1200W+ PSU's out right now to power the cards and the other things consistently.
they are designed to handle the heat.
just because you have never had a video card with that much heat output doesnt mean that its bad.
You guys should set all the negative "feeling" aside.
I noticed the SLI bar is almost fill up, that's mean it's pretty much use all 4 GPUs.
and if this is going to turn into a bitchfest i'll close the thread.
and before you say im a fanboy check my system specs.
Not disagreeing but on the flip side who said it was good for the rest of your system?
Or is the new thing to put heaters in the case now?
that wouldnt be anything new
notice...it isnt in a case
If there is a problem, report the post. Please leave the moderating to the moderators. Thanks.
anyone that can afford 4 of these cards can most likely afford the water setup to keep them cool
Or the broke the bank on the cards. I have seen both ways. I would never own a 4870 X2 unless it was under water. but lots of people own them and run them stock and then some expect to overclock.
Almost 1.1Ghz core speed is enough for me.
Did they post any results from where you found the pic Fit? Anyway, lack of air is common for sli/crossfire dual slot cards.
not yet but im sure something will turn up soon.
I wonder how many power supplies he used
a single EVGA SR-2 PSU.
Beast of a PSU.
rolf joe -- that pic's classic!
and yeah, that is one beast of a psu - over 220 amps on the 12v rails...
